KBB Expert Review

KBB Editors' Overview

By Matt Degen


The 2018 Audi Q7 is the flagship SUV from the German luxury brand, a 3-row/7-passenger hauler that deftly competes with the Infiniti QX60, Acura MDX and BMW X5. The Q7 was revamped last year, when it entered its second generation as a lighter, lither and more advanced luxury vehicle. Audi's largest crossover SUV stands out with its dynamic driving nature and sophisticated technology that touts everything from innovative safety and semi-autonomous driving features to its future-is-here Virtual Cockpit with realistic Google-maps navigation. You won't find monstrous V8 power under the hood or acres of room in the third row, but if you want a luxury SUV with brand cachet, standard all-wheel drive, sleek design and smart technology, the 2018 Audi Q7 nails the list.

You'll Like This Car If...

If you crave a 3-row luxury SUV that packs style, technology, enjoyable driving dynamics and the prestige that comes with every Audi, the 2018 Q7 has it all. Standard Quattro all-wheel drive and the ability to tow up to 7,700 pounds and blast from 0-60 mph in 5.7 seconds feel like icing.

You May Not Like This Car If...

If you intend on regularly utilizing the third row, you can find more space in an Infiniti QX60 or Acura MDX. The Q7's new cousin, the 3-row Volkswagen Atlas, is a lower-priced alternative with excellent interior flexibility. If you need more room still, look to the larger Mercedes-Benz GLS or GMC Yukon.

What's New for 2018

All-new just last year, Audi has since added a turbocharged 4-cylinder base engine to the existing supercharged V6, which drops the Q7's starting price to around $50,000. Updates for the 2018 Q7 include standard Audi advanced key, while Premium Plus trims gain the 3D Bose Surround Sound system.

Driving It Driving Impressions

The first-gen Audi Q7 was already among the most fun-to-drive 3-row SUVs available, and its dynamics and driving enjoyment have only gotten better with this new, 2nd-gen model. That's what happens when you lose roughly 500 pounds, lower your center of gravity by 1.7 inches and install a 5-link front/rear suspension. On the road, this translates to an SUV that's supple and quiet in everyday driving, and dynamically polished when the need for speed or a curvy road beckons. The supercharged 3.0-liter V6 is a commendable powerhouse. The new 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine packs decent motivation for its size but lacks the deeper reserves of the V6 for high-speed passing and towing. Whichever model you choose, you'll be rewarded with fantastic steering feel. Opt for the Adaptive Chassis Package available on the Prestige variants, and you'll get full air suspension and 4-wheel steering that helps slice three feet off the turning circle.

Favorite Features

AUDI VIRTUAL COCKPIT
This tech option makes the 2018 Audi Q7 dash look like something out of the future. The Virtual Cockpit replaces traditional analog speedometer and gauges with an immersive 12.3-inch digital display. Fully configurable and connected via 4G LTE, it can show everything from Google Earth maps to what's playing on satellite radio.

ADAPTIVE AIR SUSPENSION
Exclusive to the top-end Q7 Prestige trim, Adaptive Air Suspension is part of the Adaptive Chassis Package that also includes 4-wheel steering. Along with improving comfort and control, it can raise ride height 2.4 inches for better off-road ground clearance, and lower it an inch at freeways speeds to reduce aero drag.
